Intense development and a booming population, coupled with major municipal and provincial policy shifts, mean big changes on the horizon for Stittsville.
Managed properly, this represents an incredible opportunity to craft an even better community, where people can live comfortably, move around safely, find meaningful work, and enjoy everything Stittsville and the rest of the city have to offer. Effective governance is key—knowledgeable councillors who embrace transparency, who prioritize smart budgeting, and who are responsive to residents and value their views and ideas.
As a deeply engaged citizen and long-time community advocate raising my young family here, I am well positioned to represent Stittsville's interests at city council, and to guide our progress during the 2022-2026 term. I believe in strong leadership, in city goverment that serves residents, and in building safe, amenity-rich neighbourhoods. I am ready to take my advocacy to the next level for the community I am so happy to call home, and I need your support.
With your help, we can truly move Stittsville forward.
Hi! I'm Tanya Hein, a mother of four children, active volunteer, dedicated community advocate, and your candidate for councillor in Stittsville (Ward 6) in this fall's municipal election.
I have a passion for community building, and a long-held interest in the policies and municipal decision-making necessary to create connected, sustainable and beautifully livable neighbourhoods, especially here in Stittsville.
To that end, I spend much of my free time talking to residents, and serving a variety of local associations and boards, including more than a decade monitoring and responding to development and other city issues for the Stittsville Village Association.
Outside of volunteering, I enjoy time with family and friends, reading, sewing, biking, and exploring Stittsville's green spaces.
I need your help to win this election and push forward the vision I have for Stittsville and the broader Ottawa community!
First, I want to hear from you. What are your concerns, thoughts, and ideas for the community? Municipal government has the strongest impact on our day-to-day living, and I believe priorities have to be set based on community needs. Find my contact information here.
Second, please consider volunteering. There are plenty of ways to get involved, such as knocking on doors, handing out flyers, delivering signs, and soliciting donations. This campaign is about community, and there is a valued role and place for everyone.
